Monkey Farts Flavoring Oil (unsweetened)- The aroma of our famous Monkey Farts flavoring begins with top notes of fresh bananas and juicy grapefruit, middle notes of kiwi, juicy bubblegum, and strawberries; with a hint of vanilla as a base note.

None of our flavorings contain any gluten, formaldehyde, or formaldehyde releasing agents.
Flavoring oils are different from fragrance oils.
Flavoring oils are regulated by the FDA because they are designed to be used for consumption or for cosmetic products that may be ingested. The ingredients contained in flavorings are considered GRAS (Generally Recognized As Safe) by the FDA. Flavorings developed for lip balms smell, but do not taste. It is only when sweetener is added to the flavoring that you can taste the flavoring.
Since lip balm, lip gloss, and lipstick are worn on the lips, flavorings are used to scent them. Our flavoring oils are created using distilled, fractionated coconut oil as their solvent. Some of the ingredients in our flavorings are natural, while other ingredients are not considered natural. Flavorings typically do not have as strong of a scent throw as fragrances do. Therefore, it is not advisable to use flavorings in candles, porpourri, or smelly jellies.
If you require that your product is sweetened, add powdered stevia extract with maltodextrin. Stevia powdered extract with maltodextrin is an all-natural sweetener that mixes nicely with lip balm base without producing the excessive gritty feeling that most sweeteners produce. Stevia is approximately 10-15 times sweeter than sugar, and a little bit of this product goes a long way.
Suggested usage of flavoring oil in lip balms range from .4-4% in the finished product.
